A new 17-inch FangBook gaming laptop is one of three products CyberPower PC has on tap for CES.
It's always a welcome sight to spy boutique system builders hanging around the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Yes, we fully expect a full slate of tablets and gadgets to debut this week, but as far as CyberPower PC is concerned, now is the perfect time to unveil a trio of enthusiast products, including a new notebook, small factor factor (SFF) gaming PC, and a redesigned liquid cooling system (LCS).
Let's start with the gaming notebook. CyberPower PC's FangBook is a 17-inch laptop with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) LED backlit-display, Intel Core i7 3630QM processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M GPU, 8GB of RAM, 750GB hard drive (7200 RPM), DVD burner, USB 3.0 support, built-in memory card reader, and HDMI/VGA outputs. That's a pretty potent collection of hardware for a notebook, and it will sell for $1,299.
Next on the slate is CyberPower PC's new Zues SFF, a full-fledged gaming PC that's about the size of a console. It measures 9.5 inches wide by 3.9 inches high and features two USB 3.0 ports on the front, 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity, an AMD Radeon HD 7750 GPU, up to 16GB of RAM, and a 2TB hard drive.
As for the processor, the Zeus SFF wields an unlocked Core i5 3570K CPU nestled into a Z77 Express Chipset mini-ITX mainboard. CyberPower PC also crammed a slot loading DVD burner into the mix. The base price of the Zeus SFF is $799.
Finally, CyberPower PC plans to show off its updated Xtreme Hydro II liquid cooling system. It's designed specifically for multi-core CPUs (as if we're running anything else these days) and includes a reservoir equipped with dual D5 pumps, a new AX240 or AX360 radiator, and XSPC RayStorm Chrome CPU block. The Hydro II 240mm kit costs $210 and the 360MM is $343, both available as upgrade options over a standard Intel cooler on CyberPower PC's Gamer Xtreme, Zeus Thunder, Zeus Storm and Fang III Series PCs.
